Turning ten is saying goodbye to your one-digit age and looking forward to a two-digit future.

Turning ten is two handfuls! It is a special birthday because at that age, large chunks of identity are added at lightning pace. Dealing with the fact that it is impossible to be big and small at the same time may well be what children encounter most frequently as they grow up. A perfect reason, in other words, for saying goodbye to the one-digit years with your loved ones and for embracing the two digits (and the many good things that come with them).

This is what Marilou wrote about her experience:

'Hello Barbara, my mum asked if I would write a lovely sentence about the growth party well here it comes: 'It was a special day for me and it turned out to be special too.' That was it until next time. Greetings Marilou xxx
